Cooking Demo from Chef Jacques


On this site, we are lucky to have permission to feature the recipes from Chef Jacques of Chez Francois. My parents have been dining at Chez Francois for over 40 years. My husband and I have been going there for anniversaries and birthdays for over 20 years. The French Onion Soup, Lobster Bisque, Mushroom Crepes, Fresh Salads, Filet Mignon, Salmon with Lobster Sauce, Lamb Chops, Veal, Chocolate Souffles, Plum Tarts and Dark Chocolate Cakes are to die for. In fact, everything there is fabulous starting with the garlic bread and cottage cheese spread they give you when you sit down at your table. They have a new downstairs section where you can order a la carte. Read about the unique history of this wonderful restaurant below. Many people have considered it one of the very top restaurants in D.C. for decades.

François Haeringer, the founder of L'Auberge Chez François in Great Falls, Virginia, was a pioneer when he opened the original Chez François in the heart of Washington DC in 1954.

Haeringer was born January 6, 1919, in the Alsatian town of Obernai. As the first child born in Alsace after the region was returned to France at the end of the First World War, he received the name François. He started cooking at age 16 and worked as an apprentice in a local restaurant. Three years later, he went to Paris to work at the famed Hotel Plaza Athénée. When the Second World War started, he joined the French army and was captured by the Germans. Because of his cooking skills, he was sent to work at the Four Seasons hotel in Munich. After the war, Haeringer returned home to France, where he met his future wife Marie-Antoinette. After getting married, his first child was born, and in 1948, Haeringer received his American immigration visa, and took his new family to Washington, D.C. The rest is history with wonderful food for the people of the D.C./Virginia area. Francois died in 2010 after a fall. Eldest son Jacques, a chef in his own right, now carries on the tradition at L'Auberge Chez François.
